ATOS PROTEST BY ECAP

First, I got this 18-page long collection of press coverage regarding suicides due to ATOS and benefit cuts – from a courageous whistleblower, these wonderful people who get crucified for doing the right thing. See Whistleblowers UK – a coalition to support all those standing up to wrongdoing and corruption in the workplace – in the Care Home, Defence, Police, NHS, Banking.

“DEEP DISTRUST about our Political System and the Way it is Reported by the Media”: BBC Radio Jersey

16 Comments

Picture of Matthew Price of BBC Radio Jersey t...

The Jersey Way is an “out side look at the goings on around the Island. From an average Joe view point.”

Here it publishes a sequence of radio interviews by BBC Radio Jersey about CoverUps. The interviewer Matthew Price talks about our time of ‘deep distrust about our political system and the way it is reported in the media’. Yes, we found that child snatching is one of Seven Deadly Syndromes and Seven Media Cover-Ups.

The radio interviews are about the history of child abuse and paedophilia: children’s homes and foster care. More

My first visit to Berlin Prison – on Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s footsteps

4 Comments

Thanks to a former class mate who is one of the priests in Tegel Prison, where a church is at the heart of the complex that was started in 1896.

I had a great time talking to inmates, comparing notes: regarding prisons, courts, lawyers and, especially everything surrounding child snatching.

The most important difference is clearly that prisoners on remand live in completely separate houses, if not prisons, from convicted inmates. After all: they are assumed NOT to be guilty until proven otherwise. I do wish Maurice and the Musas were treated in that way, especially as they are all Christians!

I was especially moved when I realised that I walked on the footsteps of Dietrich Bonhoeffer whose quote below comes from this link:

“The ultimate question for a responsible man to ask is not how he is to extricate himself heroically from the affair, but how the coming generation shall continue to live.”
— Dietrich Bonhoeffer, After Ten Years (December 1942)

Operation Musa Activated: the world needs to know what happens in secret family courts and prisons

No, you can’t imagine it:

  • Whilst kept in Holloway prison, Melissa has been asked to say good bye to her son over videolink – by a local authority who has made up a big story about her and managed not only to put her into prison but now locked up on a 24-hour basis and drugged against her will…
  • Gloria Musa has had to undergo an ‘adjudication’ where she asked for our help as McKenzie Friends, but that would require ‘prior arrangement’ – which was perfectly impossible to arrange.

The humiliation that Gloria has to endure, instead of living her usual life as a happy family serving God and Christian communities, is horrendous.

However, we have not only launched an Association of McKenzie Friends, we have also joined forces with two charities that have ample experience with making life easier for prisoners: Spurgeons and Women in Prison.

More on our latest press release regarding the Musas and their six kidnapped children. It refers to our letter to Sir Nicholas Wall, the President of the Family Division, in the hope that he’ll sort things out.

Poetic encouragement from a seasoned victim turned starfighter

9 Comments

There are people who don’t like to use the word ‘victim’, for it may imply a ‘victim mentality’. My observations of victim stories since 1998 reminds me of my mum who used to tell me: “what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.”

People who have been victimised can take their experiences as a challenge and become proud when they learned to master them – for at least having tried their best! This is the conclusion that the 75-year old victim turned starfighter has come to who sent me this marvellous poem:

Tell me not of mournful numbers,
‘Life is but an empty dream!’
For the soul is dead that slumbers,
And things are not what they seem -

Life is real! Life is earnest!
And the grave is not its goal;

Winning is no more than this: to rise each time you fall.

Thanks to the magic of networking, this lovely poem entered my inbox. It reminds me of what my husband used to say:

It all depends how you measure success.
The Japanese measure it by the number of risks taken!…

The Race

by Dee Groberg

“Quit! Give up! You’re beaten!”
They shout at me, and plead
“There’s just too much against you now.
This time you can’t succeed.”
And as I start to hang my head
In front of failure’s face
My downward fall is broken by
The memory of a race.
And hope refills my weakened will
As I recall that scene
For, just the thought of that short race
Rejuvenates my being.
